Sheet1 Page 1 Chapter 5: Gases Properties of gases: no fixed shape, exerts pressure, duffuses, eg. O2, N2 Pressure: A measure of force exerted per unit area i.e. P = F/A P = pressure, F = force, A= area Barometer (Torricelli): Equipment used to measure atmospheric pressure Units of Pressure: 1atm = 760 mm Hg = 760 Torr 1cm = 10mm SI units of pressure (Pascal) ***1Pa = 1Nm^-2, 1atm = 101,325 Pa*** (Nm = Neuton meter) Standard atmospheric pressure: Pressure at sea level = 1atm Class probs: Convert 5.381 Torr to atm = 5.381Torr x 760 Torr / 1 atm = 4089Torr

If the pressure of the gas is changed to 1.05...
